Not only was Onasi Olio-Rojas driving at high speed but he also wasn’t wearing a seat-belt - and there's Facebook Live video to prove it.
To make matters worse, his driver’s license was suspended at the time.
In the video, the music in the car is deafening as he races at 114 mp/h (186 km/h) through the traffic on Roete 6 in Providence, Rhode Island, in America. Above the blaring music one can hear Onasi yelling and going crazy as he turned his cellphone camera to film his car’s speedometer. Tragedy then stuck when a garbage truck hit his car in the rear, careering across three traffic lanes before crashing into a concrete wall. The road was strewn with bits of the wreck, including loudspeakers and subwoofers.
